(NSI News Source Info) VENICE, Italy - January 17, 2011: SuperJet International (SJI) - a joint venture between Alenia Aeronautica, a Finmeccanica Company, and Sukhoi Holding - signed today with Mexico’s Interjet airline a contract for the purchase of 15 long range Sukhoi Superjet 100 (SSJ100) aircraft in the 98 seat configuration, plus 5 options.

Based on the price list, the overall order has a value of USD 650 million. The first deliveries are scheduled for the second half of 2012.

Along with the order, SuperJet International announced the execution of a “SuperCare” Agreement with Interjet for the after-sales support of its fleet of new Sukhoi Superjet 100 aircraft over 10 years duration. Since its Entry Into Service, Interjet SSJ100 fleet will be supported by SJI with this tailored after-sales solution.

The Agreement is a comprehensive “per-flight-hour” program developed by SJI specifically for SSJ100 aircraft Operators. This innovative lifecycle solution has been designed to maximize aircraft availability to Operators and minimize their maintenance and administrative associated costs.

With this new milestone, the Sukhoi Superjet 100 finalizes 170 firm orders. The first deliveries to the launch customers Aeroflot and Armavia are scheduled for the first quarter of 2011.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 Programme represents the most important industrial partnership between the Russian Federation and the rest of the world in the civil aviation sector.

The Sukhoi Superjet 100 is currently the best choice in the 100-seat aircraft segment because of its outstanding characteristics in terms of quality, comfort and operational costs.
